Right off the Promenade in downtown Long Beach, you’ll find Recreational Coffee, a shop serving slow pour-overs to the beat of punk, reggaeton, and hip hop. The coffee here is undeniably great, ethically sourced, and comes in a wide variety of roasts, like the Ethiopian blend that has hints of lemongrass and pineapple. And this hangout spot also never shies away from reimagining how you can serve a double shot. Their sea salt affogato is like a certified ice cream sundae with three vanilla scoops, rich espresso, and a delicious chocolate sea salt topping that adds tons of flavor and crunch. If you aren’t looking for dessert, try the hoppy iced coffee that’s flavored with Wai-Iti New Zealand hops and faintly tastes like you’re at a Happy Hour.
